VistaGen Therapeutics, Inc. (VSTA)
The QualityStocks Daily Newsletter would like to spotlight VistaGen Therapeutics, Inc. (VSTA). Today, VistaGen Therapeutics, Inc. closed trading at $0.69, up 6.15%, on 1,300 volume with 2 trades. The stock’s average daily volume over the past 60 days is 969, and its 52-week low/high is $0.06/$3.15.
VistaGen Therapeutics, Inc. (VSTA) is a biotechnology company applying stem cell technology for drug rescue and cell therapy. Drug rescue combines human stem cell technology with modern medicinal chemistry to generate new chemical variants ("drug rescue variants") of once-promising drug candidates that have been discontinued during late-stage preclinical development due to heart or liver safety concerns. VistaGen also focuses on cell therapy, or regenerative medicine, which includes repairing, replacing or restoring damaged tissues or organs.
VistaGen's versatile stem cell technology platform, Human Clinical Trials in a Test Tube™, has been developed to provide clinically relevant predictions of potential heart and liver toxicity of promising new drug candidates long before they are ever tested on humans.
By more closely approximating human biology than conventional animal studies and other nonclinical techniques and technologies currently used in drug development, VistaGen's human stem cell-based bioassay systems can improve the predictability of the drug development cycle and lower the cost of new drug research and development by identifying product failures earlier in the cost curve. According to the Food and Drug Administration even only a ten percent improvement in predicting failure before clinical trials could save $100 million in development costs, which savings ultimately could be passed on to patients.
Using mature human heart cells produced from stem cells, VistaGen has developed and internally validated CardioSafe 3D™, a novel three-dimensional (3D) bioassay system for predicting the in vivo cardiac effects of new drug candidates before they are tested in humans. VistaGen is now focused on using CardioSafe 3D™ to generate up to two new, safer small molecule drug rescue variants every twelve to eighteen months. VistaGen anticipates that these drug rescue variants will be modified versions of once-promising new drug candidates that have been discontinued by pharmaceutical companies and academic research institutions because of heart toxicity concerns, despite substantial prior investment and positive efficacy data demonstrating their potential therapeutic and commercial benefits. In most cases, VistaGen plans to license or sell its new, safer drug rescue variants in strategic partnering arrangements with global pharmaceutical companies, arrangements providing VistaGen with both near term and downstream milestone payments and economic participation rights but without future development cost obligations.
VistaGen's lead drug candidate, AV-101, is in Phase Ib development in the U.S. for treatment of neuropathic pain, a serious and chronic condition causing pain after an injury or disease of the peripheral or central nervous system.
Neuropathic pain affects approximately 1.8 million people in the U.S. alone. Although the current active AV-101 IND is for the treatment of neuropathic pain, VistaGen's development plan and regulatory strategy for AV-101 has been designed to allow its Phase 1 safety studies to support Phase 2 development for depression, epilepsy, Huntington's Disease and Parkinson's disease, indications for which there is now supporting preclinical efficacy data. To date, VistaGen has been awarded over $8.5 million from the U.S. National Institutes of Health (NIH) for development of AV-101.
VistaGen is also developing LiverSafe 3D™, a novel predictive liver toxicity and drug metabolism bioassay system for drug rescue applications. In parallel with drug rescue activities, the Company is funding early-stage nonclinical studies focused on potential cell therapy applications of its Human Clinical Trials in a Test Tube™ platform.

Excellagen, Cardium’s FDA-cleared highly-refined fibrillar collagen-based topical gel designed to facilitate wound care management for diabetic ulcers and many other types of wounds, has been the center of much of Cardium’s recent activity. The product was selected by Podiatry Today, an award-winning monthly publication on foot care, as one of the top 10 podiatry innovations in 2012, and is considered a very promising tool for accelerating the wound healing process. Cardium recently announced the formation of a Medical Advisory Board for Excellagen, made up of leading practitioners, clinicians, and researchers with diversified expertise in the field of advanced wound care. The company also announced the publication of an Excellagen “Profiles in Excellence 2012” article in Podiatry Management and two presentations at the Desert Foot 2012 High Risk Diabetic Foot Conference in Phoenix, Arizona.
Excellagen has been the subject of positive findings by physicians actively using Excellagen, with a number of physicians observing a rapid onset of the growth of granulation tissue, an important part of the wound healing process. In certain cases, rapid granulation tissue growth and wound closure have been reported using Excellagen’s wound care management therapy following unsuccessful treatment with other advanced wound care approaches. In addition, remarkable biological healing responses have been observed following cancer-related Mohs surgery for patients diagnosed with squamous and basal cell carcinomas, including deep surgical wounds.
Having received FDA clearance for Excellagen, Cardium has established cGMP out-sourced manufacturing and supply with UK-based Angel Biotechnology. The company has also developed cold chain logistics and distribution with Smith Medial Partners, and initiated a pathway toward securing private payer and government product reimbursement, including Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS), and has assembled an internal strategic and tactical sales and marketing team. The company is currently engaged in physician relationship building with key opinion leaders, product sampling, practice integration, and building a portfolio of physician case studies.
Excellagen has been engineered to serve as a delivery platform enabling multiple device and therapeutic product extensions. The company is currently in discussions with strategic partners to establish representation, marketing and sales, or co-promotional arrangements into various U.S. vertical wound healing market channels.

Just as stem cell technology holds out the current best hope for the regeneration of healthy cells, immunotherapy is becoming the latest best hope for efficiently dealing with diseased cells. Although immunotherapy in its broadest form can be said to date back to the pioneering work of 18th century English physician Edward Jenner, who greatly advanced the ancient but dangerous practice of inoculation, the modern practice of manipulating the body’s own immune system to treat disease is often marked by American surgeon William Coley who developed a rudimentary cancer treatment based on provoking an immune response to bacteria around 1891.
Today, although it is still a developing science, immunotherapy has become an important tool for treating various types of cancer, as well as other diseases. It can be used to provide a general boost to the body’s immune system, or can be used to focus the immune response against specific types of cancer cells. In addition, immunotherapy can be used to suppress certain immune system reactions, which is important for preventing rejection of organ transplants or for treating various auto-immune diseases.
TNI BioTech is a Maryland based biotechnology company that uses their own patented immunotherapy technology to mobilize the body’s immune system and combat fatal diseases, including cancer and infectious diseases such as HIV/AIDS. The company’s most advanced clinical program works by isolating a patient’s lymphocytes and then incubating them together with Methionine Enkephalin (MENK) in an enriching external incubation system. The lymphocytes are then put back into the patient to destroy tumor cells.
The company is currently working with three primary products:
• IRT-101, an active immunotherapy that works by activating a patient’s immune system against infectious diseases and tumor cells
• IRT-102, an adaptive immunotherapy that works by isolating and enriching a patient’s own immune cells
• IRT-103, an active immunotherapy that works by activating a patient’s immune system against HIV/AIDS and tumor cells
